The Angelicum Congress Center is located in the historical centre of Rome just a few steps from the Colosseo and from the Fori Romani; from the palazzo del Quirinale, seat of the presidency of Italy; from Piazza Venezia; from the Colle del Campidoglio, seat of the Municipality of Rome and of the Basilica of Ara Coeli, with the gorgeous square designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti.
Thanks to its landscape record, the Angelicum has been choosen as ideal location for the International Congress, that will take place in the extraordinary hemicycle Auditorium - the Aula Magna "Giovanni Paolo II" - overlooking the sixteenth-century cloister from which you can access a lovely and green roof garden with mediterranean plants (and some benches for relaxing moments in the breaks of congressional work).
